3D Operations Manager



September 29, 2021

Our client is a leader in spatial computing. Their most notable products include our Structure Sensor line of 3D scanners, our Structure SDK 3D scanning software platform, and their mobile app for 3D scanning homes, Canvas, which was featured in Apple's own keynote about the iPhone 12 Pro as a significant example of what you can do with its new LiDAR sensor. They are a global company with offices in the United States, Russia, and Ukraine.

They are seeking a 3D Operations Manager Engineer to join a team and play a key role in making the  “magic” happen for customers of Canvas. Every day, our customers scan homes and upload those scans to their Scan To CAD service, which processes that data into CAD files, 2D drawings, and BIM models in various formats. That pipeline includes a mix of the latest computer vision and AI algorithms, advanced tools, and human operators, but they simply get an email within ~24 hours saying their files are ready. Customers frequently refer to this as their “easy button for as-builts,” and you will be responsible for overseeing the day-to-day of the human aspect of the pipeline.
